Sometimes, I just don’t have the energy to come up with an exciting outfit for work. I’m running late. Or one of the kids has forgotten to take something to school. Or I need to stop on the way to get gas. Sometimes, all three!

Those are the days when I reach for an easy sweater dress. Of course, sweater dressing is nothing new, however, this year’s crop is more body conscious (and flattering!) than the baggy, often shapeless garments of years past.

Here are my top three picks in a variety of price ranges that will add some style and color to your week. Add one simple accessory, fab footwear, and you’re ready to go.

And, since I am writing this post in the morning, guess what I’ll be wearing into the office…
